What RAM for Acer Aspire 5613AWLMI 533 or 677Mhz?

Hi, I want to update the RAM in my machine, but have seen 2 varieties of speed from RAM suppliers. I'm confused. My Machine is 5613AWLMI 533Mhz FSB 2MB L2 cache etc.
I believe with a faster RAM speed, my machine could run faster 667 > 533? Is this correct? And what RAM would suit me, 2Gig or 4Gig, and can I keep the 1Gig (2 x 512Mb) somehow... like 2.5G of RAM?
Please help,
Paul

    Thanks for that, very helpful!
    Will 2.5G RAM make my Laptop (Vista Home Premium) function MUCH Better? Is it a 2.5 factor? Or is it best to try and upgrade to the Maximum, so softwares etc run optimally.
    Thanks again!
    Paul

That being said, I'll make the following comments that will hopefully answer your questions.

The maximum memory for your computer is 4 GB. However, if you are using a 32-bit operating system only 3.7 will be available for the system to use minus however much else you are sharing for the video.

Using 667 memory won't make your processor run any faster; the 533 MHz FSB is set in the processor and using 667 memory won't make the memory run any faster either; it will only run at 533. If you do get just 1 2 GB chip to make 2.5 GB total, make sure it is the same speed as the other chip. Usually it's not an issue but sometimes it can be.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

    I would recommend to upgrade to the 4 GB for Vista...even though you're losing .3 Vista needs every ounce it can get. However, you will see a noticeably sizeable increase in performance going from 1 to 2.5.

    You're welcome and if you would kindly give this a four star fixya rating, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

How much maximum ram does acer aspire 4520 support? and is it fine if we have one ram of 2 gb and the other of 1 gb?


Your machine currently has this ram (1GB DDR2 667 SDRAM)

You can upgrade to 4GB DDR2 800MHz ram, sell old one off.
If you use old ram you must exactly match to old in speed, ie 2GB ddr2 667 SDRAM.

I recommend renew with matched larger faster ram 2 + 2 GB DDR800

My acer aspire 5738g shutdown while i plaay agame


You either overloaded the processor or the available RAM. Also with these laptops and high end games...it is very easy to overheat them unless they are on a cooling pad with another external fan blowing cool air over them, without it they will shut down due to thermal overload....this is to keep them from melting something. Try checking with the support driver page for your laptop and see if there is a BIOS update that addresses the algorithym for fan speed, then pull the heat sink from the processor, clean everything up and apply a good thermal paste compound, then blow out all the airvents and make sure there are no restrictions.

Acer Aspire 9410 Won't work with two memory slots filled


Hi,
As you mentioned that you want to use Maximum memory that is supported by 9410, I would like to tell you that you have 32 bit processor in your notebook as its not always advisable to use 4 GB RAM with 32 bit processor as we have seen lots of compatibility issues.Infact in 32 bit processor windows will typically report only 3.2 GB due to a limitation of windows itself.

That's a memory or RAM error. You need to re-seat the ram of your machine.

Can't upgrade an Acer Aspire 3000 notebook to 2 gb


Thanks for choosing fixya.com

Your not alone in this type of problem. When it comes to computer (laptop especially) they usually have a "Max allowed ram" most times its listed in the back of the manual in small print. Its a way to keep people buying new computers (if your into the conspiracy theories)
Chances are even a bios upgrade would not fix your problem. Mostly BIOS upgrades add support for new boot options, plug and play support, and fixes to bugs in older versions.

You can check aspires/acers website for updates www.acer.com
If they have an update it will comes with documentation as to what the update does.

Hope this helps you out.

Upgrade for acer aspire 4315


Hi, best and fastest way to increase your laptop speed is upgrading RAM to 4 Gigs, using 2x2Gb RAM modules like this one (UK seller).
Adding a bigger hard drive won't increase laptop speed, but will give you more space to store your files.
Another way to speed up a computer is using CPU overclocking, but this operation, good on old computers, is not worth on a computer with new CPU like yours.
On you tube also some user posted videos on how to upgrade chips on motherboard of old Acer aspire, but I suggest not trying this, as risk to destroy laptop is very high, and it is generally not worth.
Better to stick with traditional upgrades.
